Even on the Internet (especially on the Internet), quality is subjective.


  • Jesus Is Savior. A website made by a Christian pastor that hates everything including rock music, Catholics, atheists, public schools, Alister Crowley, women wearing pants, the New International Version Bible and everyone and everything not his own denomination. It looks like it was designed by a schizophrenic.
  • Youtube Poop uses this trope endlessly (and intentionally).
  • Strangely, the weird "anime puppet" style that every Newgrounder and his brother uses is used in a completely un-ironic fashion. It can take a while to realize this.
    • In that same vein, The Trapped Trilogy needs a mention. The puzzles are laughable, the story is stupid, and the whole thing takes itself way too seriously.
  • Girl vs. Vampire. It's impossible to tell if the creators were serious. It stars a friend of the channel's owner, who pimp slaps the "Vampire" (which is really... a mannequin?) in slow motion. Then it repeats in normal speed and plays the rest of the video, which is her cursing at it while throwing it around and punching it. Then the slap is shown again at the very end of the video. This is better than most works on that channel.
  • In each Worth1000 contest, the amazingly well done higher-ranked entries often contrast with the So Bad It's Good entries that make up the rest.
  • T Barb Drills and his friend made Golduck Production, a video described as "This is intended to be laughably bad. considering; all the actors are action figures, the cast are mostly morons, it was made after 11:00 PM, Me and my best friend were feeling kooky, I got new Pokémon figures, and the dialogue is nuts. This was made for a good laugh and I was not serious at the time of the recording." It's on Youtube and you can find it here.
  • Depends on who you ask, but to many, this is the main appeal of YouTube's (in?)famous Fred videos.
  • About 45% of this site's ads.
  • This arms company's advertisement for Aero India 2009. It manages to get everything so incredibly wrong that it becomes so bloody hilarious when you realize it's supposed to sell those missiles the girls are dancing around.
  • Let's Paint TV, a call-in TV show where the host runs on a treadmill while painting and mixing drinks. Sadly, most of the people who call the host are disgruntled gang members, jerks who make fun of the host, and perverts who hit on his female co-host. It has to be seen to be believed.
  • Half Life: Full Life Consequences started life as a bad piece of Half Life fanfiction and was completely, gloriously transfigured in this fan video using Garry's Mod.
  • Song parody website Amiright features a lot of these, and the names of the parodists who write them are even wackier than the songs themselves, for instance some of the editors are quite fond of Theme Naming. One of which is Agrimorfee - whose name sounds like the name of a Greek god or Harry Potter character and get this... his name *means* 'parody.'
  • Conservapedia. The only source of online information free from the 'bias of the liberal media'.
    • So popular among online trolls that it's now impossible to tell what was added by serious conservatives and what is deliberate parody, which just makes it funnier.
    • The George W. Bush article once said that he was "one of the greatest presidents in American history," that he was "successfully able to salvage the Hurricane Katrina rescue effort after it was sabotaged by a Democratic/Islamo-Fascist conspiracy" and that his unpopularity was due mainly to him being forced by the Democratic Congress to push through bailout packages.
    • At least part of the reason for its popularity with trolls lies with its creator having a massive case of Small Name, Big Ego, and handing out free passes to anyone who supports him in unrelated discussions.
    • They accuse Barack Obama of everything under the sun, claiming that he's a Nazi Communist (somehow) who was only elected due to his mind controlling policy.
    • The guy who founded the place also wants to make his own version of the Bible that removes all references to mercy. Think about it.
    • That all said, Conservapedia has been primarily edited by trolls ever since its rise to infamy, so exactly how much, if any, of this is sincere is impossible to determine.
    • The quotes section from the Donald Trump article:

 "This country is going to hell."

"We have no leader in this country."

"Our leaders are stupid, they are stupid people," and "It's just very, very sad..."

"I'm Obama's Worst Nightmare"

"You're Fired"

    • Their article about the European Union once said that its capital city was "The city of Brussels in France".
    • Their article on jaundice has, since 2008, contained an incorrect claim that too much antigen can cause it.
    • Their articles on bands are cryworthy in terms of ridiculousness. Apparently The Decemberists "endorse Barack Obama for the presidency and/or kingship."
    • They claim that the BBC is linked to Al-Qaeda.
  • The Official Flash "Animation" Series Transformers: Action Blast. Aside from standard bad Flash Animation and a plot ripped wholesale from the pilot episode of Transformers Generation 1, the numerous non-sequitur (The insane rambling narrator, Megatron being dully outraged by cars, the Autobots scanning theirs alt-modes with Eye Beams...) makes it strangely hilarious.
  • Pube Muppet (Warning, NSFW.)
  • So ur with ur honey and yur making out wen the phone rigns. U anser it n the vioce is "wut r u doing wit my daughter?" U tell ur girl n she say "my dad is ded". THEN WHO WAS PHONE?
  • The entire oeuvre of Jack Chick, comic tract author extraordinaire. It borders on "laugh just so you don't have to cry" when you consider some people take its contents seriously.
  • This sad, sad attempt at a parody.
  • THIS SONG!
  • The who-knows-what being MSTed in this.
  • Robert E. Mcelwaine. Because only one man could post this kind of insanity with a straight face.
    • Likewise, Joe Jonah Euclid, who invented the word "entrepreturiting" and would loudly proclaim that he would create two zones of metaphysics (why?) so that he could have missionaries (why?) porgress miraciously (what?) as part of a plan to reveal how all Protestant churches are run by criminally insane psychic child molesters (WTF?!?)
  • Mark Gormley's music videos, particularly "Without You"
  • Gaming in The Clinton Years is an archive of hilariously bad video game reviews. Mentioned quite a lot of times on Retsupurae's channel on YouTube (which mocks bad Let's Play videos), there is nothing that can be said about the person/organization's videos that isn't "What the?" The videos themselves are from a TV show called Flights of Fantasy that supposedly aired in the 1990s. The organization NAViGaTR (which stands for National Association of Video Game Testers and Reviewers), of whose board George Wood, the man giving the reviews, was chairman, simply uploaded these videos to a wider public. Sadly, he is no longer with us, but his noticeable and slightly disturbing things said in the videos will never be forgotten:

 "Why not have a game where you have to drive an ambulance to the hospital while obeying the road signs?"

"I have a challenge to Eidos: create a sequel in which Lara Croft gets breast cancer."

"Donkey Kong Country is truly perfect. If you do not get this new generation of Donkey Kong madness, you are stupid!"

  • Drawn Sex. Crudely drawn Rule 34 comics, where Everyone Is Bi, Made in a third world country, with a Blind Idiot Translation giving us such wonderful lines as "I'm just here", "I'm go!", "Get out, bart, I'm piss!" and "Don't tell boys about us" look it up if you want, but be warned, NSFW.
  • Time Cube. Militantly atheistic, racist, and homophobic rants against "educated stupid queer oneness." According to this philosophy, there are four simultaneous days occurring at any one time (but there is no "one" time, or "one" anything), a metaphor somehow best understood by a cube, all things existing in antipodes (as a consequence of which, -1 * -1 = -1, since 1 can only exist as the opposite to -1), all "explained" in bizarrely constructed sentences in centered boldface with all manner of text effects and colors on a grid background with seemingly random vertices rotated for reasons that make sense if you understand his thesis. If you do, however, STOP READING IMMEDIATELY.
    • What's especially hilarious? Consider "YOU CAN"T KILL ME, FOR I AM 82+ CANCER." The author can't even use CAPS LOCK properly. Or the English language.
    • "Cubic antipode creation debunks singularity. Cube is the most perfect form of opposites. Opposite hemispheres equate opposite cubes. Opposite sex cubes equate to a crap-shoot." Wait, what?
  • The Childcare Action Project (a.k.a. "CAP Alert") can get unintentionally hilarious at times, such as the review of The Dark Knight, which opted to provide a long sermon on teaching children right from wrong...which featured the words "rod", "beat", "thrust", "discipline", and "sheep", apparently without noticing.
  • This "rebuttal" to a negative review of FATAL. It's apparently intended seriously, but FATAL's "creator", Byron Hall, kindly shoots himself in the foot with a grenade launcher when his criticism of the review demonstrates no apparent familiarity with basic language techniques. For example, he fails to recognize a simile, describes obvious repetition for comic effect as "redundancy", and doesn't remember that "motherfucker" is almost never intended literally. It's a hilarious read when you're not raging.
    • What makes his apparent failure to grasp figurative language even funnier is that he frequently claims Sartin and MacLennan have a worse grasp of English than he does. Yet they're the ones using metaphor and simile, and he's the one failing to recognise it.
    • It's worth reading just to see him rebut "it's a date-rape simulator" with "where is dating included?".
      • Or to see them deciding Unknown Armies is a terrible, poorly conceived game because it simplifies drunkenness to a rule of thumb rather than cramming in unnecessary complexity.
    • If nothing else, you've gotta love the way Hall genuinely tries to take on the tone of an intellectual (going on an on about how superior his grammar is, the complexities of the research he did, how he's just too smart for religion, etc.) while simultaneously insisting upon the undeniable necessity of canyon-wide sphincters and 'fist-fucking' in any proper RPG experience.
      • And it's not even that he's trying to justify "fist-fucking." He's trying to use the most scholarly language he can imagine, while also stopping to comment "Cookie Monster is cool! They call that death metal." That last one actually suggests he thinks by typing this rebuttal he is involved in a real-time conversation with the reviewers, because it was in response to a rhetorical question made for the sake of a joke.
    • There's also the part where he talks about how hot his wife is, and how he "knows from personal experience" that an overly large dong makes sex painful.
  • This advertisement video for the Appalachian State University. Everyone in the comments agrees the quality is so bad as to be hilarious. A hilarious comment (quoted in this article) sums it up, "whoever came up with this video as a recruitment tool and whoever approved it's[sic] release should be shot, shot, shot."
    • Here's an intentionally bad parody of it.
  • Saving Private Edwards. It's just so bad! For that matter, all of Talking With Jon is this; the main thing is mainly stuff getting burned, that and some of the other clips are stupididly good.
  • Blingee. It's been described as 'Photoshop for retards', and is way too annoying for even My Space teenyboppers to actually use, but wonderful when used ironically (see liberal blog Wonkette for shining examples).
  • Santa's coming down the chimoney.
  • You don't have to understand French to laugh out loud at this clip It's a promotional clip for Nicolas Sarkozy's political party made by the movement's young adherents that became a national Crowning Moment of Funny. It has everything : voices that don't match the characters, ministers (even a former Prime Minister!!) doing a stupid dance, a cheesy, over-the-top song, a Five-Token Band in the beginning, a 5-seconds video of Obama and a pure WTF moment : see the guy driving the car with the sunglasses on ? He's blind.
  • Jon Lajoie has an uncanny ability to generate media that is So Bad It's Good.
  • Any Flash animations by dusthillguy, the most famous perhaps of which is Monsquaz (NSFW, though certain organs are censored.)
  • TV Tropes can be this, thanks to the occasional internet tough guys or butthurt fanboys that edit this site. Various Troper Tales pages make for great cringe humor.
    • The Insufferable Genius troper tales page. The typical entry is summary of what arrogant, dog kicking assholes they are quickly followed by "but I'm really a nice person on the inside!"
    • This was the opinion of several users of this site on the former name of the Boisterous Bruiser trope, The Toblerone. It was so obscure, so completely meaningless that on reading the trope definition the sheer cognitive dissonance pushed a minority of vocal readers to enter a Zen state of perfect understanding. It was "the sound of one hand clapping" of trope names.
    • The infamous tale of the boy who broke 33 pencils on Beware The Nice Ones is also widely considered to fall into this category.
    • Two words: This Troper
  • The Irate Gamer, a known plagiarist, blatant liar, and cannot get his facts correct, and yet, he's fun to watch, mainly because you want to see just how bad he'll get.
  • This video. (Totally SFW.)
  • They're on a couch.
  • Intentional example: Sath McFarland (Slightly, slightly NSFW), a parody of Seth MacFarlane. The videos, specifially Family Man, consist of a mash of images on random backgrounds with unfiting music and Youtube Poop-ish effects while being voiced by a computer speech program. And it parodies everything wrong with the newer episodes.
  • A couple of scenes in Survival of the Fittest fit this. One of the most notable examples was anything to do with Carson Baye of v3. A Bandou Expy (right down to copying his infamous Kick the Dog moment almost word for word), he was also an Occidental Otaku, who introduced himself on the island by killing rabbits and ending up walking towards a group while covered in blood. He then analysed the group, and put them into Moe stereotypes. Other antics include shouting out a Death Note reference and playing on his DS in a middle of a gunfight. His death scene? Involves him taking a crap in the middle of a dangerzone. While quoting Pokémon. Many other examples on the site exist, that it's impossible to name them all.
  • Who's that Pokemon?
  • These guys have my vote!
  • Whatever the fuck this is.
  • YouTube's captioning device (which is originally used for deaf people) qualifies when it has such word salad gems as "I have a six-year-old and that may be headed for trouble", "Fuck my sex life", "I designed this virtual stadium myself in prison", "Let me show you who's going to lose a lot of pot", "It's like you've given up on election day", and "My brain, you know it going to die" being around. These captions are considered Funny Moments, even if the video shown is supposed to be serious and/or not funny. It's even more hilarious when you find shows and video games that are mainly meant for a younger audience and they find naughty words like "Sexy", "Vaginally", "Shit", "Genitals", "Fuck", "Cock", "Asshole", and "Faggot". We actually want you to go click on the CC button for almost any video around if it's shown there. If you want to find some more of these pictures, click either here or here.
    • To show that YouTube's captioning system has indeed left a mark on the Internet, one needs to look no further than "Steven Magnet", a Fan Nickname given to a purple dragon that appeared in one episode because of the line given out during one of his scenes.
  • Banana Clan, an animated series where all the episodes that are more than 5 seconds long are HILARIOUS.
  • Many videos by Youtube user "Aloyalgamer", particularly his Let's Play of Suikoden II. Among other things, he sometimes attempts to voice act for the characters' written dialogue (his voice for Luca Blight sounds like a tea kettle on helium), he is infamous for dropping incredibly blatant "hints" towards later plot events, often forgets to keep track of time and routinely ends vidoes mid-scene, mid-battle or even mid-sentence, and in later videos frequently belched during the recordings. He once recorded a series of videos after having recently undergone dental surgery. Perhaps most egregiously, however, was when he nonchalantly and very loudly chowed down on popcorn while recording the final sequence of the game. And yet he is just so enthusiastic about everything he does and possesses such a degree of earnestness his videos are made better for it, not worse.
  • The Adventures of Alex the Fox. A weird Sonic fan-cartoon starring a Self Insert fox named Alex, taking place in the Sonic X-verse. If the animation wasn't laughable enough, the Narmtastic voice acting is. First episode, second episode, third.
  • Knock Knock! It's me, the RATBOY GENIUS! I Just came over to say hi.
  • This kid with some kind of metabolic disorder posts videos of himself lip syncing to songs. Just... watch one.
  • This Deviant ART page. (NSFW)
  • Charlie Sheen's Twitter account.
  • Faux Paw the Techno Cat. Four cartoons (1, 2, 3 and 4) about a spin off character of McGruff the Crime Dog, a little cat called Faux Paw who teaches kids how to use the internet safely. The animation is like something from an mid-90s PC game, the music sounds like it was stolen from an episode of Looney Tunes and the messages are really off the mark. But despite all of that, they have some strange, inexplicable appeal.
  • C Boyardee's Dilbert trilogy. Originally made as an art appreciation project, these short videos feaure mindbending plots and grotesque visuals. Every character (voiced by C Boyardee himself) speaks in a dull, monotone voice, and they all look incredibly deformed and wrinkly. All this set to peaceful music. The trilogy ends with Dilbert and Wally murdering everyone in the office building and then committing suicide. You can view all three Dilbert videos here.
  • Some of the written reviews at Arrow in the Head website. Apparently, watching Cowboys and Aliens is equivalent of having a threeway sex with a blond and a brunette.
  • Cringevenom and Bargain Bin of Oblivion are made of this. The videos are bad and the poster and viewers know this, but they're just so funny.
  • Cracked's rejected Photoshop contest entries.
  • Neko Sugar Girls. Hideously bad artwork and animation, an incoherent melodramatic plot, and loads of mangled, nonsensical Gratuitous Japanese delivered in equally ridiculous voices, all topped with a dash of tongue-in-cheek self awareness.
  • Heartless Bitches International has a whole collection of hate mail from trolls and crazy people.
  • Master Wabit's Earthbound LP could count, he's playing it blind, loses to almost every boss, talks to himself like a mad man, and it is hilarious.
  • The inventively titled "Slender Man Short Film" is quite possibly the most hilariously stupid portrayal of that greatest of internet horrors that you will ever see. Bad effects, worse acting, and a "story" that lies somewhere between Idiot Plot and Random Events Plot make for some very funny Nightmare Retardant.
